Rudradeep Biswas :
as u see, Samsung tablet Galaxy tab is priced approx Rs. 50,000 ($1050) but with this price tag it can not be a hit! India needs cheaper Android solution, and as 3G is goin to be more mainstream, demand for 3G phones is rising! Indian people r nt aware of mobile OS, they believe in Nokia or now move to Dual SIM handsets!
3g handset wth Android @ below 10K will make a market in India for Android!
